Medical Insurance: CSA requires all applicants to have or obtain adequate medical and accidental insurance before starting the program. We list a couple of insurance companies for you to contact in the “travel information” section of this website. Please be sure to send CSA a copy of your insurance card, and if you already have insurance then double check with your current insurance company to find out if you will be covered while overseas and how claims are processed.Overall, it is for your own protection to have such insurance.
